In the year Universial Century 0079, humanity lives in space colonies called Sides. Side 3, the Principality of Zeon, has declared war on the Earth Federation. After the intial fighting, an 8-month stalemate occured. However that stalemate breaks when Amuro Ray stumbles into the Gundam, the Earth Federation’s secret weapon. Now Amuro and the crew of White Base must stand up to Zeon in order to end the war.

“I’m very excited to be able to finally bring UK fans the original Mobile Suit Gundam series in its entirety” says Andrew Partridge, president of Anime Limited. “The fact we’re able to bring the series on Blu-ray to these shores is the extra icing on the cake. Being able to see this classic in the highest possible quality is going to be a real treat for everyone. Plus for those who have never experienced the original Mobile Suit Gundam before there will be no more a perfect time to do so than now.”
